A quick jog through the saving tips below will equip you with everything you need to know to find the best bargains when shopping for gear and outdoor clothing at REI. Before you mount an expedition to your local REI store, be sure to browse through the coupons listed above for links to current money-saving REI coupons.
REI members always get free shipping on orders of $75 or more. If you are not a member you can add a membership to your order at checkout ($20) and free shipping over $75 will apply. If free shipping sounds good, but your order does not reach the minimum required, or you don't want to become a member, you can still get free shipping by having your order shipped to the closest REI retail location. Even oversized items ship free to a store, and there are some items that can only be shipped to a store and not your front door, like some brands of bikes. It may take up to 3 weeks to arrive at the store, so plan ahead if you want to take advantage of this shipping option.
